FAIRFIELD, CT, Nearly 200 women gathered earlier this month to celebrate Pullman & Comley’s 2014 Networking Tea held at Fairfield University’s Bellarmine Hall.  Now in its 17th year, the annual event hosted by Pullman & Comley’s Women’s Leadership Initiative provides an opportunity for women professionals to network while also supporting the work of a local nonprofit organization.

This year’s event highlighted the work of the Norma F. Pfriem Urban Outreach Initiatives, a mission-magnet organization that supports volunteer-powered, food-centered, community-anchored initiatives bringing hope to the City of Bridgeport.  In addition to the food pantry, several of the current programs sponsored by the organization include “Project Learn” after school tutoring, “Feel the Warmth” weekly supper, a cancer support group, urban work camps, English as a Second Language education and community gardens.
